Larry Kent Hrabik passed away on Friday, Jan. 18, 2019 at his home in Omaha, Neb. at the age of 82.
Larry was born on April 30, 1936 in Wilson, Kan. to Henry and Viola (Cook) Hrabik. He grew up in Wilson and graduated from Wilson High School with the Class of 1955. After graduation, he joined the United States Air Force in 1956. He was united in marriage to Phayllis (Boothe) Hrabik in 1957 in Topeka, Kan. To this union Mike and Ron were born.   
When Larry was discharged from the Air Force, he moved to Omaha, Neb. in the late 50s, then back to his hometown in 2001 until 2015 and after the passing of his wife, he moved back to Omaha, to be closer to his kids. For the majority of Larry’s life he spent it working as a water well driller for Layne-Western. His spare time was spent fishing, doing some farm work, and he was known for his Tin-Man creations which he sold over a broad area. Larry wasn’t only lucky in love and friendships but he was a High Roller gambling man and enjoyed playing his luck at casinos.  
Larry is survived by his sons, Mike and Ron Hrabik of Omaha, Neb.; brothers Henry Jr. Hrabik of Colorado Springs, Colo., Don and wife Janice of Merriman, Kan.; sister Pat and husband Fred Inbody of Independence, Mo.; grandchildren Jon Therkildsen, Christopher Lancaster, Jessica Therkildsen, and Mike Hrabik; and one great-grandchild Emma Therkildsen.
